Journal 52, Week 40 - Experiment!

This week, 40, for Journal 52, the prompt was "Experiment!"
I fought doing this one, because I knew it was time to pull out my sewing machine. I have never added sewing to my journal pages and I don't like sewing so this has been a constant nagging in my little creative brain. I also just finished the laundry and had another one of those dryer sheets. So, I grabbed a piece of cardstock, sprayed it and the dryer sheet with Dylusions, sopped some up with deli paper, and dunked a tag on the deli paper (I don't like to waste any color.). Then I propped each of them up and used an eye dropper to drop alcohol inks and let the colors run. After everything was dry, I rolled up the dryer sheet and sewed it to the card. It reminded me of a creature escaping into the sky so I went with "Soar" which I stamped with my new white Hero Arts Pigment Ink in white. WOW! I love this white. I added some of my own stamps in white and blue and a few little glittery stars and decided to stop. Sometimes I think I cover too much and lose what I love about a piece, and
I like this one just the way it is!
